Sue for profit!

In yet another story about a company attempting to sue its way into profitabiltiy, a company called Contois is suing Apple Computer for infringing its patents regarding music playing software. Among Apple’s horrific violations of Contois’s patent are a computer program that can have buttons to start and stop music. I don’t usually root for Apple’s lawyers but at least in this case I hope they crush Contois. Anybody who has the audacity to sue for the sole purpose of generating an income deserves to be crushed! Go Apple lawyers! Sic ’em!
